Mission: To ski the last 60 nautical miles to reach the most southerly point on Earth

“I seemed to vow to myself that someday I would go to the region of ice and snow and go on and on till I came to one of the poles of the earth, the end of the axis upon which this great round ball turns.” - Ernest Shackleton


Around 10 times more people have summited Everest than skied to the geographic South Pole. This 12 day expedition is your opportunity to traverse the otherworldly Antarctic landscape and reach the very end of the Earth. You will ski the last 60 nautical miles from 89˚S to the South Pole, hauling a 30kg pulk across the high polar plateau, experiencing all its beauty and brutality. Your efforts will reap the ultimate reward, reaching the South Pole. Picture yourself standing on most southerly point on Earth, having got there using nothing but your own strength and determination.

ITINERARY

REVIEWS

Such an amazing experience - life changing and life affirming. It has been one of the most memorable weeks of my life - learning new skills, igniting a passion that I didn't realise that I had, sharing the time with amazing people - both the members of the expedition and the course leaders.
